Wow, just wow. I want to thank my parents and my friends for their love and support and I also want to thank my pants for never letting me down... Now seriously. Hi, I'm the OP and I'm so surprised this got posted. I'm much better now. This happened yesterday after work. I put the stuff in the oven and gave my cats a fresh bowl of wet food when I felt my stomach pressing the red button for alarm. At the end I could not only not leave the bathroom, I sat there while my apartment filled with

That sounds so delicious, you should know that some countries would love to eat coal for dinner. No but seriously, this is the kind of stuff that would happen to me. If the food in the oven takes less than 10-15 minutes I just take it out quickly and will put it in after because you have no idea how long you'll be confined to the bathroom for. Hopefully there was an alternative meal available.

I love eating burnt toast. But that's because I fucked up the very first time when I made toast. It was all I knew how to make growing up and I needed to feed myself. So I grew to love the taste of burnt crispness.

How does a timer help in this situation? A reminder the food was cooking wasn't needed. the problem was not being able to leave the bathroom. that timer just keeps beeping!

#13 and a high five to you, too, sir. Some might consider me as a lady-poet, but I won't bring any gender-bathroom-issues into this. But thanks anyway.

#12 Well that wouldn't have changed anything. Also I mentioned how my oven is really old. It doesn't have a function to stop itself after a certain time. But there was lots of beeping anyway, thanks to my well functioning smoke detectors. I think I have enough of this now.

I meant a timer built into the oven, which automatically turns it off when it's done. I've never seen an oven without it. But OP now says he's doesn't have it so who am I to argue? Still, I think it's fair to assume an oven would have a built-in timer, regardless of age. It's a fairly ubiquitous feature.

#20 You must be very young if you've never seen an oven without a timer. Have you only seen ones with buttons as well?

At the risk of sounding ignorant, OP: why didn't you just turn off the oven before you ran to the bathroom?

#20 You are a 22 year old male from Israel. You have never seen an oven without a built in timer? Fair enough. I bought it 9 years ago when I moved out, from a store that sold used furniture and electronics. I really have no idea how old it is but I highly doubt it's still far away from a legal drinking age.

#22 you don't sound ignorant. I could have done it, but I didn't expect to be glued to my toilet seconds later.

20 I've owned ovens almost twice your age, and can tell you that a timer on an oven that shuts it off is a relatively new idea on all but the top end older electric ranges and on gas ranges that is still hard to find today.

It's surprising how idiotic most of the comments on this post are... I've never seen an FML with so many down voted comments. Then there's the people who try and restate a comment that was posted right before them. C'mon people.
